Chapter 262: Rothschild Explodes!

While Kang Chul-In was licking his lips looking at Rothschild’s gold dragon raid, in the west of the Baldur region in some forest, “it” was being voracious.

Crunch, crunch! Rip! D-Drip.

Even while blood and spit were dripping down, it didn’t stop filling itself.

“Keuk… p-please...”

Despite the fact that the prey was still alive, it continued to eat it.

Crunch, crunch!

It endlessly ripped the flesh and muscles of adventures apart, chewing their bones and drinking their blood.

There were broken body parts piled around it. It signified the number of people it ate.

“Keee…!”

It slowly raised its body after finishing its meal.

At the same time, the ‘change’ began.

Chuk, chuk!

The shining black skin that looked akin to an insect’s shell split apart, revealing pure white flesh.

About 5 hours later...

“Whew...!”

‘It’ let out a long breath, having finished its change.

It was the perfect form of a human with black hair, white skin, a tall height, and nicely toned muscles.

“Finally… finally!”

The language of humans flowed from its mouth.

“I’ve come back… like this...”

The language was Korean.

Lee Gong-Myung’s appearance was exactly like how it had been when he was alive.

“Just you wait...”

The thing with Lee Gong-Myung’s appearance spoke to itself.

“I’ll be there soon...”

Right after it finished speaking, it began to move.

Its destination was the east, where Alex Rothschild’s Cyamodus territory was.

***

“N-Noooooooo! Hey, you son of a bitch!”

Screams of despair came from Rothschild’s mouth.

“I said ‘nooooo!’”

“‘No’?”

Kang Chul-In asked with a smirk.

“Why wouldn’t I?”

Why couldn’t he?

This was a chance to eat this tasty and strong gold dragon for free!

Also, wasn’t it a universal fact that the grass was always greener on the other side?

In fact, the gold on the other side was more golden as well.

Swish!

Kaiforce turned into a frightening-looking longsword.

Kashing!

There was a black flash, and with an explosive sound, the gold dragon’s head plopped to the floor. Its head had been cut from its body with a single swing from the sword.

Puhak! Flash!

White light wrapped around Kang Chul-In’s body.

[You leveled up! Level 73 accomplished!]

[You leveled up! Level 74 accomplished!]

[You leveled up! Level 75 accomplished!]

[You leveled up! Level 76 accomplished!]

[You leveled up! Level 77 accomplished!]

[You leveled up! Level 78 accomplished!]

It was an increase of 7 levels!

[Regal Power +100 strengthened!]

[Lord Points +2,000P!]

[You have earned the title ‘Dragon Slayer (+20% additional damage to dragonic species)’!]

Also, he received Lord Points, the new stat points, Regal Power, and the glorious title of Dragon Slayer.

Erm, it’s not that great.

They were incredible rewards, but Kang Chul-In just smacked his lips. It was because the rewards weren’t that great considering he gave the final blow.

Makes sense, it did seem small for a dragon. 

The reason was simple.

The target of Rothschild’s growth quest, the gold dragon, was significantly young, and it was a lot smaller than the Blue Dragon that Kang Chul-In had hunted in the past.

Back then, three Overlords, namely Kang Chul-In, Aleister, and Hecate, had to work together against it.

“Well, this isn’t that bad.”

It was actually pretty nice considering he got it for free. A dragon was a rare monster, so it wasn’t something you could hunt often.

“K-Kang Chul-Innnnn!”

It was then.

“You son of a bitch!”

He heard Rothschild cursing behind him.

“Y-You’re still here?”

Kang Chul-In turned around with a cheeky grin that flipped people over from frustration.

“I-It’s the Supreme King of the West!”

“What in the world!?”

“What kind of nonsense is this!? We worked so hard… n-no, I guess we just gave it to the Supreme King of the West...”

The adventurers that recognized Kang Chul-In were completely shocked. They had barely succeeded in the dragon hunt but Kang Chul-In suddenly appeared… there couldn’t be anything more shocking than this.

“I’ll give you 10 seconds.”

Kang Chul-In spoke looking at the adventurers.

“Disappear within that time.”

He was basically saying that if they wanted to live, they should just fuck off.

“What kind of bullcrap is that!?”

“We hunted that gold dragon!”

“Hey, you thieving bastard!”

“That cowardly guy!”

The adventurers refused.

It was an expected reaction.

They were the ones who hunted the gold dragon, so they had the right to the delicious reward.

Tsk tsk, these losers.

Kang Chul-In laughed at them.

Losers. They were people that didn’t truly understand anything.

Rothschild wouldn’t share his treasure.

If Kang Chul-In didn’t come here, Rothschild would have betrayed the adventurers and hoarded the gold dragon’s corpse to himself.

And after this,

“Unfortunately, they all passed away from the tough battle. However, they were true warriors and great heroes. They will always live in my heart.”

He would say sly things like that, and the truth would be buried forever.

“Kang Chul-In, go away!”

“You should step back.”

“Do you think we’ll let you take it?”

But the adventurers didn’t know this, so they began to growl at Kang Chul-In like cornered rats. It was the blind eye of those who only saw the treasure.

These bastards.

A vein popped out from Kang Chul-In’s head.

Telling them to fuck off was a generous offer coming from him.

Those adventurers were people who participated in Rothschild’s raid, meaning they were clearly his enemies. It was extremely generous to even give them 10 seconds.

“Alright, then I’ll kill you all.”

A violent voice escaped from Kang Chul-In.

“Waitttttt!”

It was then.

-Kiiik!

A metallic cry rang in the air.

“Leave it to us!”

Dorian Explorer arrived confidently on his black wyvern.

There were about 100 wyverns behind Dorian, all with riders atop of them.

It was a wyvern attack squad.

The force that Dorian created using his experience in the British special forces, SAS, was here!

“H-Hiik!?”

“Dorian Explorer?”

“Wyvern riders!”

Because of that, the faces of the adventurers who had been growling at Kang Chul-In was a sight to see.

Kang Chul-In alone was hard to deal with.

But with Overlord Dorian here as well, they had no chance of winning.

All of Rothschild’s elite soldiers had died during the raid, and Cyamodus was a mess from being hit by the gold dragon’s breath.

“Alright, well, take care of it on your own.”

With this, Kang Chul-In completely took his attention off of the adventurers.

Dorian said he would take care of it, so there was no need for him to step up. He didn’t need to use a sword to catch a couple of chickens!

“Hey, chicken.”

Kang Chul-In turned his head to speak to Rothschild. He spoke like he was talking to a friend he hadn’t met in a while.

“Should we have a chat?”

It was time to end it.

The hour of revenge had come!

***

The situation was perfect.

There were no hidden variables.

With no extra bodies and the Scroll of Absolute Return gone, it was impossible for Rothschild to leave this situation.

Finally.

Kang Chul-In smiled faintly.

Approximately 3 years ago, Rothschild had pierced his heart and cut off his neck with the help of Aleister. Kang Chul-In remembered everything clearly thanks to the Overlord power, Soul Backup.

But now, it was time to shake off the humiliation, rage, and thirst for revenge through Rothschild’s death!

“Kang Chul-In!”

Crunch!

A teeth breaking sound came from the growling Rothschild.

Growth quest.

With the last chance for Rothschild’s comeback gone because of Kang Chul-In, hate flowed throughout his entire body.

“You bother me… until the end. Just why… do you hold some grudge against me?”

“Well, something like that.”

Kang Chul-In shrugged his shoulders.

“Keuk, keuk keuk...”

Rothschild laughed.

“Sure, I suppose you do. Fine, let’s end this damned fate today.”

“I was thinking the same thing.”

“Keuk keuk, you’re pushing me all the way to the end...”

Drip.

Vibrant red blood started to pour from Rothschild’s eyes.

“Keukk...!”

It was a sound mixed with sobs. Rothschild squeaked like an injured beast.

“Huh.”

Kang Chul-In grinned.

“Are you planning on begging me you chick...”

At that moment, Rothschild’s body suddenly began to split.

“Hm?”

Kang Chul-In narrowed his eyes at the sudden change.

“I heard you entered a cocoon and you’re doing all kinds of stuff.”

Flash!

Mitra started to let out a brilliant light from his hip.

What is this?

Kang Chul-In was confused. It was strange.

Unlike the merciless Karforce, Mitra was a sword that couldn’t destroy life. Since such a holy sword was starting to shine, there was definitely a reason for it.

For example, it could mean that Rothschild wasn’t human.

-Master!

And of course, Mitra’s voice dug into Kang Chul-In’s brain.

-That man is an Agnaga’s subordinate!

Agnaga.

He had heard of that name before.

Didn’t Kaiforce say something about Agnaga?

-Yes, Master.

Mitra replied.

-Kaiforce was the subordinate of Urosinfinit, the Machine of Annihilation... one of the 5 Agnaga.

And? So that guy is also one of the Agnaga’s subordinates?

-Yes, sir! I can feel the power of the Furious Beast, Bergelmir!

I don’t understand what kind of bullshit this is.

Kang Chul-In didn’t know what to say.

The Machine of Annihilation, Urosinfinit?

And the Furious Beast, Bergelmir?

He didn’t know anything about this.

-You have to kill that man!

Mitra spoke firmly.

She put so much emphasis on her words that Kang Chul-In’s head hurt.

-If you can’t kill him now...!

You’re too loud. 

-M-Master!

I was going to kill him, anyway. 

The sword’s interference was out of place.

Kang Chul-In wasn’t a fool, so why would he let Rothschild live?

“Well, it’ll be more fun to kill a guy that’s resisting.”

As soon as he finished speaking, Kang Chul-In lifted Kaiforce and Mitra at the same time.

Swish!
